Democracy in Action

I went from being completely ashamed of the violent police reaction to the student protests in Valencia to immense pride in how the kids conducted themselves when faced with repression. The students armed themselves with books against the police clubs (the book in the photo is Bukowski in Valenciano).  Yesterday was a peaceful day of demonstrations about cuts in public education. One sign read “ Less Police, More Education!”  It’s called democracy in action.
